Does laser treatment hurt?
It has a slight sting that can increase on delicate areas or in extended treatments. Our Lumenis One has a sapphire chill tip that helps most clients get the treatment without any topical anesthetic. The feeling during treatment has been described as a rubberband snap with an electrical pulse sensation. We are happy to perform test pulses to give our clients an idea of what to expect during a free consultation.
